Freezing baby corn?

I'm working on this recipe and it calls for a 1/4 of a pound of baby corn. I have canned baby corn, the can is 1 pound. Can I freeze the rest? I never realy had to deal with baby corn in the past.

Hi, Charlie!
If you can find the real fresh baby corn it's so much better (sorry for the adjective assault) but if you're going to use the canned--yes, you can freeze it but not for very long and it's probably going to be mushy when it defrosts and that is going to depend on what recipe you use it for. You can certainly add it to any of your delicious Ukrainian soup recipes with no problems whatsoever--it will be a great addition to any of them........

Charlie, may I ask what the recipe you were using the quarter pound of baby corn was?

I love baby corn and just found some fresh (usually use the jarred or canned).

Would love some different way to use it.

It was thai coconut hicken soup. Where did you find fresh one? Would be nice. The canned one expensive and hard to get nowadays.

Baby corn is just immature corn on the cob - yes, it can be frozen without a problem.
